Leadership Stetson is an annual program developed to identify the next generation of leaders for the university. This year’s Leadership Stetson took place early in February. Twenty-six Hatter alumni came to campus to receive campus updates, learn about how Stetson operates, meet the staff, and learn about their personal passions and how to use them to get involved with Stetson. “I really enjoyed Leadership Stetson,” said alumnus Antony Chan ’97. “I was able to reconnect with my university to experience the current state of things and to become energized about future vision. Also, I made new friends in the process. I look forward to staying involved.”
